Sur les Toits


Published 1897


On the Roof (French: Sur les Toits; Star Film Catalogue no. 100) is a 1897 French short black-and-white silent comedy film, directed by Georges Méliès, featuring the director as a bumbling policeman attempting to apprehend two criminals on the roof of an apartment building. "Every second of this," "highly successfully staged" "minute of film," according to Europa Film Treasues, "is used to construct the character's action and movements" and "made use of the theatre's three-dimensional decor," which "the competition quickly copied."
